THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Chronicle — 11 May 1861

THE TURF. i - - . TUB Races being over, dulness reigns again. Below we have given a pretty full account of cveiy thing that lins occurred. Coming events must now claim attention, among which stands prominently forth the post- ponement of Maitland. This, we believe, could not be avoided, though it is very unfortunate, in »«much as it will prevent sportsmen from attend- ing both THAT meeting and the one in Queens- land. However, it is now, Ve think, "on the cards" for horses to run »t Braidwood as well as at Mait- land ; so that both those fixtures are likely to prosper. ' ' We give our readers, this week,the superb entry for The Melbourne Cup, a race which cannot fail to excite considerable attention herefiboth from the large number of horses engaged, and also from the fact that Archer and Exeter, two of our greatest favorites are found among the entries. We must congratulate the Victorian Turf Club on the suc- cess of their experiment, and we hope 'ere iong to nee something of a lik...

THE speech of Mr WKNTWORTII at trie banquet piven ia honour of him by the members of the Australian dluh, on Saturday last, was exactly such as might have been expected from such n man. Full of manly ^vigour, ablë*argunieht, and expressive of clear and statesmanlike views, it was ,in perfect keeping with those great constitutional principl-s for which Mr \VENTWOHTH so long and so patriotically strugi/led in '*' the dark days." of Iho colony, and formed a strking contrast to the meaningless " small tnlk '* to which we have, un- fortunately, been so long accustomed, fiom the " little politicians " who have so assiduously and so successfully laboured to produce the present " downward tendency " of the country. In the present chaotic condition of our political and social affair's, the speech of Mr WENTWORTH may be regarded as the gleam of sunshine breaking through the dark clouds of adversity that over- ? shadow us, and be hailed as the har...
